The rooms are appointed nice; the floor plan had wrap around floor/ceiling windows, king bed, roomy bath with walk in shower and a small galley area. Very clean and quiet/private. Good gym (and rarely used). Simple breakfast. Great location and very good rates for this key midtown location. I'll...

This hotel is my new go to. It's chic and not like other glitzy NYC hotels. The staff is fantastic, the location great and rooms well done! It's a lively feature to serve complimentary breakfast and cocktail hour. Like a European 👌jewel You must try it!

We had a great stay at Hotel 48Lex. Rates were very competitive. Room was clean, comfy and spacious. Room rate included tix to MOMA, Whitney Museum and the Guggenheim. Add'l $20 added to the bill for daily breakfast and wifi (great deal). Staff exceptionally friendly and not intrusive. A luxury hotel without luxury prices.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
